The TSM series of training days is well established in the UK, and is now offered to mathematics teachers attending the ECIS November 2001 conference (European Council of International Schools).

There will be hands-on workshops on Word, Excel, The Internet, Geometer's Sketchpad (v.4) and Autograph, led by a distinguished team of trainers from the UK.

For this workshop, TSM is extremely fortunate to be able to offer delegates the use of the outstanding computer facilities at The British School in the Netherlands.

DELEGATE FEE only 150 Euro/ 90 UKP including documentation, refreshments and lunch.
2nd and subsequent delegates (same institution): 120 Euro/ 75 UKP. [Note: incl. Dutch btw @ 19%]

- All delegates will receive a complimentary preview copy of 'Autograph'.

This pre-conference workshop is being arranged independently from the main ECIS November Conference which commences on Friday 16 November. If participants also wish to attend the regular conference, they must register separately with the ECIS Secretariat (and pay an additional fee).
